As Parliament reconvenes, controversial political cartoonist Martin Rowson looks at political satire.
A book review in verse, by James Eagle in Britain:

Panegyric on the genius uncanny of Mr Rowson’s poetical hat-trick
by Martin Rowson
(Smokestack Books, £9.99)
When our cartoonist tires of satire, he —
A bizarre form, you may say, of flattery —
Boils the great works of lit
Down to five lines of wit
Less a tribute, more assault and battery
On the icons of literary fiction.
But Rowson has ducked a conviction
For his versified crimes, al-
though some of his rhymes are
More barbarous than crucifixion.
(No McGonagall crops up in these verses;
Perhaps there’s no way to make worse his
Of the poetic muse
Or provoke half the volume of curses.)
In short, it’s a real tour de force —
If oft’ner than not far too coarse
To read to your granny —
It’s of genius uncanny.
So buy it! I heartily endorse.
